KFC advert promotes being a vegetarian...kinda

Two women are in the ad, one who is seeking a boyfriend. Her friend is sat next to her on a laptop using a dating site for her. Several men are suggested, but each is turned down for various reasons... until the woman declares that she "only want[s] the best". At which point her friend shouts "bingo!" as she has found 'the best'.. a 6'5" Fireman, vegetarian. With the emphasis coming on the last point, showing out of all these qualities, the friend thinks being a vegetarian is the best. He too is shot down, but only because she thinks it will not work.

VOILA... Not only is he the best candidate, but out of the three reasons, the more important is he's vegetarian. TOUCHDOWN HERBIVORES!!!!!!!!!!!!! :twisted:

I understood it as him being vegitarians happens to be interesting but not nesecarily important to him being best. She dismisses him because she loves KFC too much to consider a vegitarian. So if it says anything about vegitiarians it's more 'why would you bother with them?'

It is important to him being 'the best', because she lists out three 'attractive' traits... Tall...a fireman... and then vegetarian, with the emphasis coming on the last part, hence that being the most important out of the three.

Yes she dismisses him because she loves KFC so much because she can predict future conflict between the two of them (imo)

Hmmm.... not feeling much positive veggie feedback from that ad... Still - not her fault, she is just 'obeying' the Colonel ;)
